In a search for creator Oliver Herford, this link was returned:

More animals by Oliver Herford Aug 25, 2009 Herford, Oliver, 1863-1935. [from old catalog]
Link: https://archive.org/details/moreanimalsbyoli00herf

When I follow the link, the book displayed is "The Toymaker of Nuremberg, a Play in Three Acts and Two Scenes" by Austin Strong. Title page has the additional penciled notation, "Copy 2." (See attachment, a screen shot from archive.org)

Searching for the book by title, I find:

The toymaker of Nuremberg; a play in three acts and two scenes
Aug 25, 2009
Strong, Austin, 1881-1952
Link: https://archive.org/details/toymakerofnuremb00stro

These entries are clearly cross-linked, as the copy returned from the link directly above has the same penciled notation on the title page.

Another edition of the Herford volume "More Animals" may be found here:
